Paul was born in Paintsville Kentucky to an abusive family with an aggressive alcoholic father Who took out his anger on him and his mother regularly. Paul used to get into a lot of trouble and had a drug addiction. He would steal money from the local church to feed his drug addiction. Always when Paul would take drugs he would start claiming that he had conversations with God and claimed to have seen God. He would start thinking that he is a prophet of God. This all stopped when he became sober and devoted his life to learn and spread Christianity he would go preach on the streets with his church fellows and try to bring people to Christianity. This made him want to become a missionary. His dream of becoming a missionary finally succeeded after studying the Bible for years. Paul and his friends from rehab who also went to the same church named Mike and Josh traveled to Chernarus to spread the word of their Lord. After living in Chernarus for a year the outbreak started and at the time Paul was praying with his fellow Christians in a monastery till the horde of the living dead overrun the place. Paul went to hide in the church for a couple days and when he came out and the horde was gone he saw that everyone had died. Paul started to live in the church and started farming to feed himself until the evil people came and stole all of his farmed vegetables and his farming tools. They robbed Paul and they were sure he was going to die in the wilderness of Chernarus so they just ordered him to go on his way. Paul started to wander around the forest and surviving on eating berries and fishing. Paul had been alone for a\couple of months now which also increased his delusions of being a prophet. He started to call himself a prophet of God. He would start preaching like crazy about what God had supposedly told him. Also being the only survivor of the incident increased his belief of being a prophet. His goal in life is trying to get people to be his followers and devote his and his followers lives to submit to what he sees as God's will that comes from his hallucinations. Paul now wanders around Chernarus trying to find survivors to follow him on his path to the garden of paradise in heaven.
